What’s New in AMD APP SDK V2.4

    Improved OpenCL runtime performance:
        Zero copy transfer of data between CPU and GPU for APUs (Windows only)
        Improved PCIe transfer speed
        Improved kernel launch times
    Support for AMD A-series devices
    Support for:
        AMD C-30 Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6250 graphics card
        AMD C-50 Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6250 graphics card
        AMD E-240 Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 graphics card
        AMD E-350 Accelerated Processor with AMD Radeon™ HD 6310 graphics card
        AMD Radeon™ HD 6670 graphics card
        AMD Radeon™ HD 6570 graphics card
        AMD Radeon™ HD 6450 graphics card
    Support for CPU/x86 images (Enables the support for image formats, as described in the Khronos OpenCL Specification, to be run on the x86 CPU)
    Support for cl_khr_fp64 on the CPU.
    Cached reads (-fno-alias)
    Binary image format improvements
    DXVA buffer sharing
    FFT performance improvements
    Uninstallation of SDK 2.4 or its components is now done through the Catalyst Install Manager (CIM). See the Installation Notes for a description of the procedure.
    For the AMD APP Profiler v2.2:
        Support for OpenCL™ application summary
        Support for profiling with AMD Radeon™ HD6900 series GPUs (requires AMD APP SDK v2.4 and AMD Catalyst 11.2 or newer)
        Improved Session List Explorer
        Improved user documentation (now also accessible online in Documentation)
    For the AMD APP KernelAnalyzer v1.8:
        Support for AMD Catalyst 11.1 – 11.3
        Support for setting the OpenCL compiler build options
        Improved analysis for AMD Radeon™ HD 6970 graphics cards
        Support for displaying x86 assembly code
    Commencing with Catalyst 11.3, the AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) OpenCL runtime is included in the GPU drivers. More frequent updates to the run-time may be obtained by updating the drivers.
